Communication is the basis for any transaction, business or otherwise. It is the medium via which information is shared and in turn, applied. However, the common notion we have about communication is either verbal or written. It is easy to condition yourself to effectively handle verbal communication, but written communication and that through the medium of gestures is difficult.

Non-verbal communication includes effective communication with the use of documentation and gestures. Gestures include eye contact, powerful hand and body movements, body language and facial expression. These are potent tools for communicating without words. A powerful handshake can effectively convey confidence and power. A quick glance at an employee, at a presentation, can evade an issue. An erect posture while addressing employees indicates absolute business and so on and so forth. The power of communicating non-verbally can be a valuable asset for anyone. Written communication is also non-verbal and the right choice of vocabulary and tone effectively does the needful.

The success of non-verbal communication does not lie in consciously implementing these strategies, but in identifying them and developing a sense of confidence to meet the challenges ahead. It takes time to come to an unspoken understanding with contemporaries, employees and seniors, but with a little perseverance and practice, it can be honed over a period of time.

Speaking well does not only require careful planning and preparing. It also involves choosing an approach that suits your natural communication style and matches your verbal and non-verbal behavior to the presentation.
The content of the talk, and the physical and vocal behaviours of the speaker all communicate. Aim to establish and maintain a confident well-paced delivery that sounds natural and looks comfortable. Therefore, when delivering your speech, be yourself and use non-verbal behavior that matches your word. The first few times you give a business presentation or speech you may feel nervous or suffer stage fright. Experience and good preparation are the best strategies for overcoming nerves and stage fright. Further advice is offered in the next section of this chapter.
A range of non-verbal behaviours modify or change the spoken words in your presentation by repeating, contradicting, substituting, complementing or accenting the words. Some of the behaviours that impact on the presentation are:
Facial expressions
Appearance and dress
Gestures or movements of the hands, arms, shoulders and head
Voice quality
Variation in the rate of speech
When you speak in public your audience has only one opportunity to hear and understand your message. Hence, you must speak clearly and at a suitable pace, and use non-verbal behavior in a way that helps the audience to understand the message they are hearing.
